Hundreds protest against Donald Trump in French capital

Hundreds of protesters turned out in force in Paris against US President-elect Donald Trump - voicing fears about whether he will respect human rights, women and minorities.

The crowd, including many Americans living in France, took to the streets Saturday in the Eiffel Tower neighbourhood behind a large banner "Paris against Trump".

Youssef Al-Moughrabi, born in California and studying in Paris, said that "we are not contesting election results. But in every democracy I believe there is a government and there is an opposition, in a healthy democracy, and we are the opposition".

Many placards could be seen in the crowd with messages against racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, homophobia and "white nationalism".
